So this comes courtesy of e-mail from Deanna Koerner, here’s her story:

Here’s pics of my copy of Fear of Smell. I got it at a basement show in Milwaukee, probably in 1993, when one of the bands was playing. Rorschach? Moss Icon? Can’t remember, but I’m sure I could find out. I remember they sold out of the albums at the show and I felt lucky I got one!

I’m pretty sure that both Rorschach and Moss Icon were on tour during 1993, so either one’s a good guess (and probably would’ve been a great show). Either way, this one is really unique in that the back cover got a treatment as well – which is really, really rare (well in so far as out of the 160+ we’ve seen, only a few have decorated back covers).

John Wayne, who MDC have said was a nazi, here sports a really cool rockabilly coif, with full on mutton chops, several ear piercings and a snidely whiplash pencil moustache that is reserved for creeps (and John Waters, who is probably the only guy who can pull off that look without being a creep).

  1. Actually, this is a pic of General Norman Schwarzkopf who led Operatio Desert Storm. Which makes the caption a bit more biting!

  2. Oh shit, of course. Damn, the 90’s were a long time ago.
